UFC’s December 11th pay-per-view event has temporarily lost a flyweight bout, as Maycee Barber has withdrawn from her bout against Erin Blanchfield. News of the scrapped bout was first broken by Nolan King of MMA Junkie on early Saturday.
The fight was scheduled to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
It is not known at the moment whether Blanchfield will get a new opponent for the date. UFC is reportedly seeking Miranda Maverick as a replacement, although nothing has been made official at the moment.
Barber was attempting to end her year with another win. She broke a two-fight skid in her last bout, defeating Maverick via split decision in July.
Blanchfield won her UFC debut in September, beating Sarah Alpar on scorecards.
UFC Lightweight Champion Charles Oliveira is currently set to meet Dustin Poirier in the main event of UFC 269.
